    1. 2.1.1
    2. no
    3. just resync in itunes, unless you mean jailbreak, then yes they should but you must rejailbreak
    4. Quickpwn. Get it from here
    5.Its better to restore normally and use quickpwn to jailbreak. I mean restore to 2.1. then rejailbreak.
    6. MUCH MUCH more stable.

    2.1.1 is the gen 2 ipod touch firmware, it is currently unjailbreakable, if thats a word.

    2.1 most of them should work, with a few exceptions, you jailbreak using quickpwn, just download it and follow the instructions, youll want to install cydia and installer, then after its jailbroken, just download openSSH in cydia and then ssh all your apps back in.

    The second gen touch is not jailbreakable.

    The first gen touch is on 2.1

    The first gen touch is jailbreakable.

    And you can buy the 2.1 software for your iPod touch 1G from iTunes - or er. google it and find a ******* or direct download - whichever suits your fancy.

    This guy is talking about ipod touch 2nd generation.

    So to summary the answer:
    - 2nd generation firmware is 2.1.1 preloaded.
    - 2nd generation ipod touch cannot jailbreak yet, this means no crack apps can be used.
    - 1st generation firmware 2.1 cannot use in 2nd generation ipod touch.

    * If you own 2nd generation ipod touch - no jailbreak, no cydia apps, no crack apps, no customize at the moment.
